Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

Batman on Film (who I can't seem to link to right now) is reporting that the WW role in MoS2 will be smallish...

Batman on Film wrote
Jett suggests her role is “on par with Scarlett Johansson’s first appearance as Black Widow in Iron Man 2,” with set-up potential for a future solo film.
Details at Spinoff On-line...

Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

I'm ok with that, actually. While Black Widow didn't steal the show or anything, she got a fair amount of stuff to do in Iron Man 2, if that's any indications of WW's role in this movie, then that's good enough for me.

Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

Yeah it sounds like Batman might have a slightly smaller role than we imagined as well, and that this will be much more of a MOS sequel after all.

Really hoping that's true.

Pretty much what i expected given that the movie features DC's two heavy hitters who will take center stage.

Still very curious to see Gadot in action.. i liked her very much in the FF movies she's been in because she is very charming (including her accent).

I am really looking forward to this movie also to see Affleck play Batman (i'm actually a small minority who liked Daredevil ).

Not real surprised, but still happy to hear that Bats and WW will just be supporting roles.

Idk why but this makes me happy. She is so bubbly. She wants to be a go get'em action star. She going to totally own the role as WW.

Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

Think that press interview gives a good idea why they cast her for personality/character as well as looks.

Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

If they still want to make this universe more "real" like the Nolan Batman films Gadot is better for Wonder Woman as an athleticly build woman...
Up to a couple of years ago i thought for a Wonder Woman closer to Lynda Carter they could've gone with Rosa Blasi, bodytype wise...

Yeah she definitely pops off the screen. I can definitely see her WW having the same presence and holding her own with the likes of Superman and Batman.

Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

The Black Widow role in IM2 wasn't what I'd call small or small-ish.
Even as Black Widow she's in the film for about 10minutes or so.
As her undercover role that expands to 20-25minutes.

If her time is spilt up as Diana in street clothes and WW then 20min is not a small role, it's a legit support role.

Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

My main caveat about the IM2 comparison is that I hope this film doesn't end up as a sort of springboard for a Justice League film, the way that Iron Man 2 seemed (to me) more of a prequel to Avengers than an Iron Man film in its own right.

For my money, Iron Man was a much better film than MOS, so if Favreau came a cropper with its sequel in trying to set up a bigger universe, I don't have a lot of faith in Zack Snyder's ability to do so here.

Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

I suspect the IM2 comparison has less to do with screen time as it does relevance to the plot. Black Widow was there to monitor Stark, nothing else. She only got involved later in the film when a situation developed right in front of her and she had to act.

I guess my point is that up until she blew her cover, the part could have been played by some no-name actress and it wouldn't have made any real difference to the character or plot. Likewise I think Diana will be just someone who's just there--maybe an interview subject for Lois and a business rival for Lex if they're going with the Diana Prince identity--and she only busts out the lasso in the final act. Let's just hope they handle her better than they did Talia. Yeesh!

As for MoS2 itself...honestly the first one was so drab that I'd rather they screw it up by stuffing in too much colourful stuff than just getting more of the same.
